Josh and Haley’s wedding really was a perfect fall wedding. It was even warm enough for us to take most of the photos outside! How great is that? I’m in awe of the details that Haley worked into this day. She chose a dress that was obviously inspired by the venue. It was a modern twist on a 1930’s dress. Bing Crosby was played all throughout cocktail hour, and the reception was a gorgeous mixture of greenery and candlelight.
The day began with Haley and her girls getting ready and doing the last minute touches in the bridal suite! I let them finish the last touches before heading over to the basement to photograph Josh getting his suit coat and tie on.
They shared a first look in the courtyard and then we went into some photos of just the two of them. Watching them interact and talk through-out their wedding day was so precious. They’re so comfortable with each other and so in love. We finished up photo time with Bridal Party and Family photos before the ceremony.
Josh and Haley chose the perfect room for the ceremony. I was in awe over the intricate ceiling and how every inch of Rollins Mansion was perfectly designed.
After the ceremony was over, the Bride and Groom danced into the reception room to cheers from the guests. There was speeches and first dances, and then the real party started.
Josh and Haley, it’s been such an honoring knowing you and photographing your love story! You’re such a sweet couple and I cannot wait to see what life brings you!

Sam and Abbie's Altoona, IA engagement session at Pine Hollow Stables was a horse lovers dream. We spent the whole evening walking around the pasture and even visited the spot where they got engaged!
